Converse has taken a huge step in support for the LGBT community with their new Converse Pride collection. This collection that was revealed May 13th offers a variety of styles and some limited edition Chuck Taylor All-Star sneakers to celebrate the LGBT community, diversity and equality.
Rainbow colors have been incorporated throughout the sneakers in a variety of ways. The canvas is not the only part that received a color splash; the bottom soles also show off pride. Converse says these shoes “fight for the freedom to be you” and give style to your advocacy. Whether you like high tops or prefer the low cut Converse has you covered. With fourteen different Pride styles to choose from we have a few favorite you should consider first.
The first favorite is the Chuck Taylor All Star Pride with woven body. This shoe is as unique as you with multiple colors woven throughout the body making it one of a kind. It’s a subtle nod at the movement.
Our next pick is the Chuck Taylor All Star Pride low cut with rainbow speckles design. We love the simplicity of this sneaker that still speaks volumes toward acceptance and equality.
We also like the Chuck Taylor All Star Pride high top with drip paint design. The canvas looks like it was painted with watercolor and is an artistic salute to the movement. There is a similar style available in low cut.
Our last favorite is the Chuck Taylor All Star Pride high top with star print. Rainbow colors host stars on the canvas giving this pair a patriotic twist.
The best part about this collection is they can be worn by anyone. These designs are subtle and stylish enough everyone will want a pair.
Not all shoes are created equal. The Chuck Taylor All Star II Reflective Camo collection is a unique line with unique shoes. The original Chuck Taylor All Star II is a sneaker built to last with any wear and tear. The Reflective Collection has the same quality build with a special touch. Exploring shouldn’t stop when the sun goes down, with the new reflective material moonlight doesn’t stop the fun.
The Reflective Camo collection still has the existing Lunarlon insoles, non-slip tongue and micro-suede lining for comfortable wear all day. The hardest part about choosing your next sneaker is what color to get it!
The Reflective Camo collection has both high-top and low cut options. The classic high-tops come in Sandy or Charcoal color options and the low cut in White. All the canvas is traditional Converse top quality and made to endure any adventure.

After owning a pair of Converse Chuck II for over two weeks I am most satisfied with the new non-slip tongue the shoe has. Unlike the original Chuck with a flimsy tongue that either slides to the right or left, the new Chuck II has a firm padded tongue that stays in place! I think I might even find this upgrade more important the then Nike Lunarlon sole which gives the shoe it's needed arch support. I also like the more minimalistic design the shoe has. It seems that Converse dropped the signature blue pinstripe giving the midsole and toe a fresher look. The sneaker still scuffs just as easy and every other pair so we recommend using Star Cleaner to keep your soles in mint condition.
I was the 3rd person to grab a pair of Chuck II when they dropped on July 28th. I woke up first thing and went to Champs Sports at the St. Louis Galleria only to find out they didn't get any size 10 Chucks II shipped to their store! I was shocked and left quickly to search other stores like Footlocker whom didn't even have the new Converse what so ever. After walking back to Champs Sports to possibly see If I could fit into the Size 9, I noticed a Converse Chuck 2 display in front of the Journey store! My eyes lit up as I had a feeling of restored faith! I quickly asked one of the employees to bring me a size 10 to try on. I then tried them on and realized how much more comfortable and premium they felt! The upgrades consist of a non-slip tongue, higher quality canvas and a Nike Lunarlon insole. Before leaving I hooked up both of the guys working with a bottle of Star Cleaner so they could keep their new Converse Chucks clean. The next day I heard that the hi-top black Chuck II sold-out everywhere, so I looked on eBay only to see that people had listings set for $199 buy it now! Reselling sneakers is a popular thing to do, especially with retro Jordan releases. It's only a matter of time for the Iconic sneaker to be restocked in selected stores.
In the last couple of years Converse has taken some innovative steps forward in the footwear industry. Its been more then a decade since being owned by Nike inc., and they are finally incorporating some of their homegrown technology. The biggest game changer in the Converse Chuck Taylor 2 is it's Nike Lunarlon insoles that gives the sneaker arch support. The Chuck 2 also features a non-slip tongue and a more premium canvas upper. Design wise they kept it very similar to it's original because of the fear of breaking something thats not broken. The new Chuck II features appear to be more minimalistic without it having it's signature blue line. The shoe also has more of a couture fit and giving it a premium look and feel. It's been two days since the release and they are sold out in stores. You can find a pair on eBay tonight but expect to pay $129-$199 for a sneaker that retails at $75. This release tells us Converse is on a new path with many other great things to come! Who knows they might keep the ball rolling and drop a Chuck 3 year.

The Converse was first created in 1917 as a basketball sneaker. The name "Chuck Taylor" came from the basketball star and shoe spokesman, Charles Taylor. The physical style of the sneaker has not changed since its release, however many color combinations and collaborations have been created. One common thing you hear about Converse Chucks is there lack of support. The sneaker currently has no arch or concaves to accommodate the shape of the average human foot. This has all changed with the upcoming release of the Chuck II (Chuck 2). On July 28th, Converse will now sell the new model with the Nike Lunaron technology which will add the much needed footbed support. The shoe will also feature a new microfiber canvas upper which will eventually come in a wide range of colors and inevitably designs. Converse also just opened its new Headquarters in Boston which will allow for more innovations from the iconic brand.
